Jobbing

Jobbing in spare time Your child has held a job during the holidays or has an after-school job, for example distributing leaflets, working as a sales assistant, or in a restaurant. It is good if your child can demonstrate work experience with employer references from spare time jobs. Companies find it beneficial when applicants already have workplace experience. Work in the family It could be that your child has certain responsibilities within the family, for example looking after younger brothers and sisters, working in the family business, or helping refurbishing the house. This shows that your child can take on responsibility. Hobbies and interests Your child may have interests which could be important for his or her occupation later in life. Even your child’s favourite pastime can be helpful. This depends on what your child does during his or her free time. Playing computer games as a hobby is less likely to impress an IT company.

Does my child need some sort of support and assistance? Will my child pass to the next year? Will my child get his or her school-leaving certificate? How can I help my child? 2. For information about improving marks: You will find concrete suggestions on page 17. 3. Compile all the information about what your child has done and is doing outside of school together with your child (pages 51 and 52). If there is something applicable to a particular field of work, include this in your child’s cover letter and curriculum vitae. Together with your child, gather references: internship certificates, employer references, references for volunteer work, any certificates of attendance, diplomas, media reports (e. g. clippings from a school newspaper), or the telephone number of someone who will give your child a positive personal reference. 4.
